The district administration started giving out the compensation for the land owners at Muttam where the maintenance yard of Kochi Metro is being constructed. There are 107 holders for 18 acres of land for which 27.60 c15_tvroy_Kochi_Met_1178437erore compensation has to be given.

The work for the maintenance yard had been  stopped since the land owners were protesting as they did not get compensation on 15th April, 2014 as it was promised earlier.
“We had taken all the necessary steps to distribute the compensation by 15th April 2014 but the elections and long holidays added on to the delay. The distribution of compensation amount  for the land owners in “Trikkakkara North village” has been started today and the compensation for the land owners in the “Aluva west village” will be also distributed in the coming days. Since we have started distributing the money now, we are hopeful that the work  would be resumed and we will be able to meet our deadlines for our metro project,” said Elias George, MD KMRL
